Lenmed’s story begins in 1984 when the Group opened its doors to its first clinic in the South of Johannesburg. Lenmed Clinic in Lenasia was the result of a group of passionate doctors’ efforts to raise sufficient capital to offer quality healthcare to the then marginalized communities of South Africa. As fate would have it, the first patient was a mother who gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
Lenmed exists to heal. Lenmed devotes itself to being a relevant and growing hospital group, championing exceptional patient experience and clinical outcomes, remaining true to our roots, the communities and people we serve.
The Group now operates 11 hospitals in 3 countries in Southern Africa, employs over 3000 people, has over 600 practicing doctors and treats over 200 000 patients every year.
Lenmed offers all major medical and surgical disciplines and offers 24 Hour Emergency care at all facilities. Some of the specialized departments at select hospitals are; cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery (adult and paediatric), gastroenterology, obstetrics, oncology, paediatrics and stroke.
The Group is constantly developing focused speciality centres to ensure provision of expert medical care when and where required. Key focus areas include:
- Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre is the only facility to offer paediatric open-heart surgery in KwaZulu-Natal.
- Bokamoso Private Hospital is the only hospital in Botswana to offer cardiac services, vascular surgery and nuclear medicine.
- Royal Hospital and Heart Centre in the Northern Cape offers the only cardiac and radiotherapy service in the province.
The Lenmed Group is a Level 2 Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) contributor.
